You are what God made you to be

Psalm 23:1 tells us:

1 The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.

What does “I shall not want” mean?

It is the same way of saying, “I shall not lack.”

It means that since the Most High God, Yahweh, the supreme Ruler of this vast universe is your Shepherd, then you will not lack.

Do you really believe that? Here’s something you need to realize.

When God created you, He has put in you all that is needed to fulfill your purpose. 

God carefully planned everything, so that when you go out in the world, you already have the skills, knowledge, abilities, strength, and creativity to become who you are supposed to be.

Therefore, stop comparing yourself to other people. 

Stop saying: 

  • ➡️ “If only I’m good-looking…”
  • ➡️ “If only I’m taller…”
  • ➡️ “If only I have a different family…”
  • ➡️ “If only I am of different nationality…”
  • ➡️ If only I had a different set of talent…”

If only… If only… IF ONLY…

You need to stop thinking of the things you can’t change and start appreciating what God has given you.

If you didn’t get what others have, it only means that you don’t need that. In fact, if you have those things you covet, it might even cause you to become proud and eventually, lose sight of what really matters in life.

In short, when you drain your energy wishing to be someone else, it becomes a burden, not a blessing.

You are an original

You have something that you can offer to God and to others. You have unique abilities that you can use in such a way that it glorifies God.

Use your gift.

You are not supposed to be an imitation. You are not supposed to be a copy.

What you are supposed to be is to be you!
